St. Anne School Branch*
About this location:
For 70 years, the Boys & Girls Clubs of Santa Monica has helped L.A.-area youth succeed in life by helping them build confidence and gain valuable academic, social and ethical skills – in a fun and nurturing environment. We accomplish this by offering an array of age- and gender-appropriate programs designed to support the healthy development of the whole child.
We make it a priority to reach deep into the community to support all the young people who need us, and for this reason we’ve opened sites in public housing and local schools such as Saint Anne. Our After School Program at Saint Anne school allows our members to get assistance and care during the critical after school hours. We help with their development, and transition from child to young adult by offering clubs and programs that target Academic Success, Healthy Lifestyles and Good Character and Leadership.

This Branch serves Saint Anne’s Students grades 1-8, or ages 6-14, and membership is $20 per year. 80 percent of our members come from low-income households, many from single-family homes, and still others are homeless. We ask our members to pay an annual membership fee of just $20 because it helps them understand that this is their Club, and that they have a vested interest in contributing to it as a member of its community. While our cost per child per year is nearly $1,000, no one is ever turned away for inability to pay the membership fee. We provide scholarships for those who can’t afford it, and we haven’t raised this fee in many years.
